Grushko: NATO is not trying to restore contacts with Russia

44
NATO is not taking any practical steps to restore military contacts with Russia, reports RIA News statement of the permanent representative at the alliance of Alexander Grushko.




“As for the calls for greater transparency and predictability in the implementation of the military activities of Russia and NATO, they hang in the air. After all, it was the alliance that decided to sever military contacts and in practical terms does nothing to restore them, ”Grushko said, commenting on the results of an emergency meeting of the NATO Council, convened at the request of Turkey.

“Today’s meeting of the NATO Council could be a moment of truth for the alliance - after all, one of the key allies shot down a Russian aircraft participating in international efforts to combat terrorism. However, the moment of truth did not work out, ”he said.

Grushko noted that "in the statement of the NATO Secretary General there is not a hint of condemnation of the Turkish attack on our aircraft, which did not represent and could not pose any threat to the security of Turkey and was located in Syrian airspace."

“There were no words of sympathy and regret in connection with the death of Russian servicemen who performed their duty in the fight against terrorism. But again there are indications of allegedly dangerous military activities of the Russian Aerospace Forces ",
he stated.

According to the Permanent Representative, “Ankara achieved its goal - hiding behind the notorious allied solidarity, forced the alliance to justify its illegal actions, which not only undermine the common efforts in fighting the IG, but also created security risks for the countries associated with Turkey and allied obligations”.

“This has once again confirmed that NATO is not guided by the principles that its representatives like to argue about, but by political expediency,” Grushko said. “And this fact can hardly be covered by outwardly politically correct calls for“ calm and de-escalation. ”

    Yes, there will not be any proceedings on the part of NATO, everyone knows with whose consent this provocation was being prepared, they simply spat on our face and now they are waiting for us to respond. The provocation is planned and if our tops were not ready for such turns then ...
    Очень ждут что мы на эмоциях нарубим дров и втянемся в войну "против всех".
    Revenge, served cold.

    PS I am also really looking forward to what we will answer, I also want to be tough, but I do not think that the answer will be obvious in the near future ...

        ""
        ..Nata, it’s different. We look at the protests of Greece ..
        "25 11 2015 ..Инцидент со сбитым турецкими ВВС российским Су-24 вызвал бурную реакцию в Греции, поскольку турецкая военная авиация постоянно нарушает воздушное пространство этой страны.

        Многие греческие медиа обсуждали, что было бы, если Греция стала сбивать турецкие самолеты за такие же нарушения, которые приписывают российскому Су-24. "Турецкая сторона не является сторонником деталей, когда дело доходит до нарушений греческого воздушного пространства", — пишет газета Protothema.

        The newspaper reports that in May, Minister of Defense Panos Kammenos proposed building a NATO base on one of the Aegean islands so that the alliance has a clear idea of ​​Turkey’s behavior in the region.

        Turkey does not recognize Greece’s 10-mile air zone around the islands, resulting in numerous incidents involving the Greek Air Force intruding Turkish military aircraft. According to the General Staff of the Greek Air Force, in 2014, 1269 airspace violations were recorded, including 14 flights over the territory of Greece. For the ten months of 2015, from January to October, 1233 violations were recorded. Including there were 31 flights over the territory of Greece.

        Несмотря на то, что две страны являются союзниками по НАТО, Турция также часто нарушает морские границы Греции. За семь месяцев 2015 года, с января по июль, было зафиксировано 175 случаев нарушений."

    Meanwhile, in the American independent press:
    Writes Gordon Duff combat infantryman, a Vietnam war veteran. Columnist and editor in chief.

    Erdogan’s crazy actions were carried out, according to sources, after consultations with Senator McCain, a loser presidential candidate and head of the Senate Arms Committee. McCain expressed Turkey’s assurances that the NATO commander, General Philip Breedlove, would personally include Turkey in the US nuclear defense zone if there was a clear and direct confrontation with Russia.

    McCain assured Erdogan, according to sources, that the Pentagon is ready to oppose Obama and that Russia, knowing this, will prefer to hush up the incident. What Erdogan really does not understand is that McCain, rumored to be insane and unbalanced, represents the End of Times group, religious extremists, including Lindsay Graham, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and all, except for two candidates Presidents from Republicans, for whom the nuclear apocalypse is an end in itself.

    Original:
    Erdogan's insane actions were done in consultation, according to sources, with Senator John McCain, unsuccessful presidential candidate and current head of the Senate Armed Forces Committee. McCain is said to have made assurances to Turkey that NATO commander, General Phillip Breedlove, would “personally” extend the protection of American strategic nuclear forces over Turkey if a direct confrontation with Russia ensued.
    McCain assured Erdogan, according to sources, that the Pentagon was ready to move against Obama and that Russia, knowing this, would back down. What Erdogan fails to grasp, however, is that McCain, rumored to be increasingly mentally unstable, represents a groups of “End Times” religious extremists which include Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and all but two of the huge field of Republican presidential candidates to whom nuclear apocalypse has long been a goal.

      The incident with the SU-24 will be jammed or smoothed, this is clear. NATO is ready for our retaliatory action, so you can’t rush. It is unlikely to do without military clashes in the near future.

МО должно обеспечить максимальные меры безопасности для наших летчиков, которые выполняют свою работу и судя по всему успешно, если идут такие провокации.

    Единственно, что должно делать "равноправному партнёру", - закрыть воздушное пространство Сирии для самолётов НАТО. Французы пусть летают над Турцией, а то как бы чего не вышло.
    In fact, there is no anti-terrorist operation by NATO. NATO is on duty to partition Syria and Iraq. Turkey already considers its northern border territories of Syria, so our plane was shot down.

    The math is simple.

Well, tell me which country in NATO has a normal functional US army, well, another 2-3 countries with a stretch, the rest of the snappers that allowed to set up bases on their territories.

    There are a lot of methods of influence on Turkey. We were declared war, therefore - all means are good. Kurds, Armenians, Iran, and all who are in trouble for Turkey can be our temporary (or permanent) fellow travelers. We have time to gouge the oil rigs in Syria - good! To build a nuclear power plant is stupid, the construction must be frozen. All Russians should choose other places to stay. Turkish stream - freeze. Starting next year, gradually refuse Turkish products, but it is better to raise duties on them. Etc.
